Description

François de Laval, a key figure in the history of Quebec, devoted fifty years of his life to the social, economic, educational and religous development of New-France. This book presents a missionary bishop: a man given to prayer an mediation, modest, detached fom wordly goods, and above all able to adapt to new situations. It is worth reviewing his life in detail. The troubled period facing the Catholic Church makes this review even more relevant today. Preface by Cardinal Gérald Cyprien Lacroix. Translated by Benjamin Waterhouse.
